You always wanted a Wanderers jacket to pay tribute to the equally sympathetic and tragic protagonists from the cult film? There was just one catch: you're not into shiny satin in gorgeous colors? Then we have the solution with this wool jacket: a matte fabric, a casual college jacket cut and one of the color combos from the film, which is rather one of the more muted ones. Wear it as part of the gang of Joey, Richie and Perry and accompany them through the challenges of 1963 New York - pickin' up chicks, bustin' up "Baldies" and standin' up to the "Ducky Boys". It was the Wanderers against the world - and the world never had a chance!
The absolute eye-catcher of this jacket is the large embroidery motif on the back and the matching logo patch on the front. But it's the authentic color combo, which is based on the various two-tone jackets from the Wanderers movie, and the heavy wool fabric that make it a real eye-catcher. The high-quality wool-blend fabric is rust-colored and goes fantastically with the faux leather sleeves in ocher with vintage effect. Enough storage space is provided by two piped pockets on the outside and two welt pockets on the inside. The striped rib fabric in rust/ochre fits perfectly and is very sturdy, so that too much wear out is prevented. The jacket has a lightly padded, black quilted lining and closes with snaps. A cool jacket that makes fantastic with 50s jeans!
The film "The Wanderers" reflects the jungle of the New York street gang subculture in 1963. It is about the Italian-American gang "The Wanderers" who fight off the Fordham Baldies, the Ducky Boys, the Wongs and the Del Bombers. The film is as much comedy as it is high school movie and tragedy. It is marked by the classic rock and roll soundtrack with songs like "Walk Like a Man," "Big Girls Don't Cry" and "My Boyfriend's Back." The focus is on a football game between rival gangs to defend not only their territories, but also their honor, which eventually ends in a mass brawl. This film is a nostalgic look back at times gone by and a great rock'n'roll retrospective on a fantastic era of music!
